Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth
Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth | William Wordsworth
8 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth represents Wordsworth’s prolific output, from the poems first published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798 that changed the face of English poetry to the late “Yarrow Revisited.” Wordsworth’s poetry is celebrated for its deep feeling, its use of ordinary speech, the love of nature it expresses, and its representation of commonplace things and events. As Matthew Arnold notes, “[Wordsworth’s poetry] is great because of the extraordinary power with which [he] feels the joy offered to us in nature, the joy offered to us in the simple elementary affections and duties.” From the Trade Paperback edition.

From “Phantom of Delight”

“She was a Phantom of delight/When first she gleamed upon my sight;/A lovely Apparition, sent/To be a moment's ornament;/Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair;/Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;/But all things else about her drawn/From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;/A dancing Shape, an Image gay,/To haunt, to startle, and way-lay.”

Prompt: Higher

This poem by Wordsworth is a stretch for today's prompt. Nevertheless, it is beautiful and I wanted to share it.

I had just been thinking that I‘d like to get back to reading more poetry and with deliberation. I may not participate every month, but I‘ll try to dip in as often as possible. #poetrychallenge

Natasha.C.Barnes That sounds like a great way to do the challenge! Whatever works for you. 😊 2y
